Pacific One-Piece

One of our favorite options when choosing a swimsuit for surfing is our Pacific One-Piece! The thick straps provide good coverage that isn’t going anywhere. It fits nice and snug with no extra fabric to get in the way of you and the ocean. This one-piece isn’t your typical boring surfing suit either, as the petite floral design against the bold blue background color, makes the suit stand out in the best of ways. The back details really sell this suit as they don’t compromise the coverage but show a little more skin in the most flattering way. Complete with a cute, functional zipper, this suit is what surfing dreams are made of!

Kokkini Long Sleeve Top

Every surfer girl needs a long sleeve option in their wardrobe to protect from the sun’s rays and act as a rash guard when the surfing day turns long. Our Kokkini long sleeve top is all that and more! In a beautiful brick red color, it provides full coverage while also being comfortable and cute! For the girls out there, that prefer a two piece but also want it to be surf-friendly this is a great option! It’s cropped just enough to pair perfectly with a pair of high-waisted bottoms! The model here pairs it with the Mica High-Waisted Bottoms for a trendy and stylish look that can take the heat when the waves get rough.

Havasu Two-Piece

Another fabulous two-piece surf-friendly option if you hope to keep the coverage but to get a little bit of tan on the arms, is the Havasu set! The high neck and thick racer tank style straps keep everything secure so there is no need to worry when playing in the waves! It comes in a beautiful pale blue color with the blue theme carrying on to the color-blocked high-waisted bottoms as well! The high-waisted bottoms are snug enough to stay put and provide our traditional leg cut so coverage won’t be an issue here!

Sonora Two-Piece

The Sonora set is a twin to the Havasu set! It has all the great qualities that we love from the Havasu, but features a darker color scheme.  The brick red tankini top coordinates well with the color blocked grey and white bottoms of this set! Our favorite detail might just be the fun cut-out design of the back. While not compromising on coverage, the triangle cut-out is a fun feminine addition and really ties the whole suit together! Both the Sonora and the Havasu sets are great two-piece, surf-friendly suits if you are looking for something to keep you comfortable and confident on the waves!

Phoenix One-Piece

Our next surf-friendly suit we would recommend demands attention with the beautiful, bold red-orange color! Its simple design makes it an easy pick when choosing your next swimsuit to surf in! The thick, ribbed fabric of our Phoenix One-Piece swimsuit makes it incredibly durable! The criss-cross design of the back also protects from slipping straps so there’s no need to stress while wearing the Phoenix! And to add a bit of flair to this simple, functional suit, there’s even a cute notch neckline that makes the suit one of a kind!

Rose One-Piece

Our next one-piece surf option comes from our newest fall 2022 collection, the Rose One-Piece. This beauty is made of the most gorgeous crinkle fabric and is in the prettiest shade of pink. Also keeping with the goal for a simple design while playing in the waves, this suit features a scoop neck with thin spaghetti straps. But what we love most about this suit is the clasp feature in the back that keeps everything feeling secure and adds a little bit of personality with the open back. This suit is so versatile and can flatter just about any skin tone or body type, making it one of our go-to options for surfing!

High Tide One-Piece

The last suit on our list of recommended suits for surfing is the High Tide One-Piece! This is easily going to become a new staple piece in your surf wardrobe with its timeless and elegant design. Both the front and back of this suit feature a scoop hemline making the coverage unbeatable while staying fashionable! Made in an off-white color with the same crinkle fabric as the Rose, this suit looks good on so many different colors, shapes, and sizes! Because the High Tide is lined, it avoids entirely any potential problems of being see-through and is not going to be revealing anything it shouldn’t! This white one piece truly is one of our favorites for a reason and will be yours too!
